One of the most popular and recommended Thai restaurants in Macau. Experience genuine, exotic, and rich Thai flavors such as their fried prawn cakes—crispy on the outside and juicy inside—with sweet and sour sauce, and generous servings of pad thai and tom yum gong soup, which are among our favorite dishes to order here. Their restaurant is always packed, but worth the wait for a great dinner with friends and family.

Corner Thai Kitchen
Below St. Lawrence Church and just opposite a bus stop is a small Thai restaurant—Corner Thai Kitchen. We like coming here to escape from the crowd, and love their Thai shrimp paste fried rice, hai nam chicken rice (with soup) and we also love sharing a platter of their deep fried shrimp cakes when dining with a friend or family. And of course, we never visit a Thai restaurant without trying their Thai ice milk tea and lemon-grass with lime sweet drink. Their chicken feet salad and tom yum gong soup are also popular.
A full-on cultural immersion located at Macau’s Fisherman’s Wharf, Talay Thai has an outdoor alfresco dining area as well as indoor dining and private function rooms. Perfect for big group gatherings or a romantic lake view date at night. They elevate traditional dishes like tom yum gong soup and pineapple fried rice, and both dishes are must-tries.

Thai Candy Cafe
Thai Candy Cafe offers a variety of mains, clay pot, soups, pizzas, sandwiches, snacks, salads, desserts, drink choices and more. We like sharing their Thai snack platter that includes chicken sticks, spring rolls, shrimp cakes, and chicken wings accompanied by three dipping sauces and their popular pad thai. No good meal here is complete without dessert. Try their caramelized mango with ice cream. Our tip: sprinkle a bit of the chili-sugar-salt on your mango, to bring out the sweetness of the tropical fruit. Other popular dishes include their coffee short rib, with beef so tender and the coffee flavor in balance with the coconut rice; seaweed shrimp cake; and mango sticky rice. They also have lunch and afternoon tea sets.
